Advanced Handling Systems is now TriFactor

 As everyone in business knows, changing a company name has serious implications.  It can often leave people wondering why. Since we have been considering a name change for a several years, let me share our thinking with you.

  • Why we changed our name. Over the years, the Advanced Handling Systems name has caused confusion since others are using the same or similar name in other parts of the country. As our service area continues to expand, the confusion increased to the point where it was in our best interest to consider a new name.  We wanted an identity that reflects our vision and capabilities. 
  • Why we see a name change as important.  We are a far different organization than we were even a decade ago, primarily because of the immense changes taking place in distribution technology. We are far more sophisticated in what we do because our customers’ challenges are far more demanding. You expect us to lead the way and that’s how we measure our success.  We recognize that the best solutions are the result of a partnership with customers that’s built on mutual trust and respect.
  • Why we chose TriFactor.At the same time, you may still be wondering why we chose the name TriFactor. It is our belief that TriFactor expresses our total focus on the three factors that are most important to our client-partners: Decreased distribution costs. Increased Distribution capacity. Increased distribution quality. If we are to deserve your business, we must deliver on three factors. This is the TriFactor commitment––and the TriFactor guarantee.  We will always take pride in the Advanced Handling Systems name. It has served us well for more than two decades. More importantly, our goal has always been to give it the respect it deserves. Now, we look forward to seize new opportunities with enthusiasm and competence under our new name. TriFactor
